My husband has been asking me for days what I want for Mother's Day. I usually know exactly what I want, but with the budget being tight and the fact that I don't really need anything, I was having a hard time trying to decide.
I'm happy to report... because I know each of you is just dying to know... that I figured out what I want. I told my husband that I want to sign up for the Surf City USA Half Marathon.
I can't sign up until June 1st
So, Happy Mother's Day to me! The race isn't until February 7, 2010 but that's just fine with me. With the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll still up in the air for me, I will have this race to help keep me motivated... and hopefully a few others from my "wish list" in the fall.
The Green Smoothie that Wasn't
I took Amanda's challenge for Raw Foods Wednesday, and decided to make a green smoothie. I used organic herb salad, spinach from my garden, cilantro from my garden, milled flax seed, flax oil, stevia, Greek yogurt, and blueberry juice*. I blended it all together in my blender. It was not green. It was purplish-brown... sort of like a bruise. It smelled... horrible. It tasted... even worse. It made me gag so I poured it down the drain. I don't mind eating my veggies, so I think I'll stick to solid vegetables.
*I did not get this recipe from Amanda. I'm sure she has much better ideas of what tastes good together than I do. I was just using what I had available.
